Operations Manager | GE Oil & Gas
Thank you very much for all the leadership insight you provided last week. Even in this short time I have noticed a dramatic change in how I look at and address certain situations. Going in to last week, I was not really sure what to expect, but I can tell you I didn’t think I would be provided with so many lessons to better myself as a leader inside and outside of the work place. Yet that is exactly what happened. Once again, I cannot thank you enough. It was a joy to be in the class.
Susan R., VP of Learning & Development and Performance Solutions | Home Instead
I am truly grateful that our world’s collided back in 2016. The work that 2Logical has done with Home Instead has had a significant impact on our ability to effectively deliver on our brand promises to seniors and their families. Without a doubt, I know that the power of mindset and unlocking of potential is how HI didn’t just survive 2020, we actually thrived. Our relationship goes beyond business, I truly know that you care about us; and that means the world to me!
Kevin D., Export Supervisor | Baker Hughes
I just wanted to write and say a belated thank you very much for the training you gave us last week at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Center. The day was thoroughly enjoyable and I took a lot from this course that will carry over to all aspects of my life. Prior to this course I had been making up excuses and disillusioning myself as to why I wasn’t fulfilling ambitions and succeeding in life goals. This is no longer the case. Your training has made me realize that I can fulfill my potential and make dreams a reality, and I fully intend to.
You also gave me insight into becoming the best father I can be with the ability to provide my own kids with the key to success, I also thank you on their behalf. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.

Aram K., President | Woodland Foods
To say your training and feedback is valued would be a grand understatement. We couldn’t have organized our efforts, created buy-in or had the clarity in thought that we enjoy, without your contributions and the contributions of 2 Logical. Thank you!
Todd H., Operations Manager | Baker Hughes
When I went to your class last September, I was not sure what I was going to do to change the attitude of the people of the yard that I had just been moved to manage. Once I got back to the office, I went to work re-interviewing my people and getting a feel for their concerns and goals. After gathering all the information, I put a plan together. First of all, we came up with a mission statement and our goals. Then, we ironed out the High Payoff Activities that would help us meet these goals.
One common theme that I heard from the guys was that they were tired of hearing how great the Odessa yard was and how they should just do things like Odessa does them. So I asked them as a group, “What have you done to change that?” They could not give me an answer, so I told them, “If you don’t like something then change it, don’t just complain about it.” So this was how we got our Mission Statement of “Setting the Standard.” I told them that if we perform to the best of our ability then we will make people say, “Look at how Hobbs does it, that is how things should be done.” I have our High Payoff Activities posted in the main foyer of our office for our employees and customers to see.
We have since more than tripled our monthly revenue numbers and have done so without giving up our flawless execution. My area manager is also using our perfect inventory score as an example to other districts in our area. He told me that he is always telling our corporate leaders how great we are doing in Hobbs. I forwarded an email that was sent from our Vice President to me and my boss saying that he ‘hopes the other yards will be able to meet the bar that was set by Hobbs’ to all of our teams with the statement:
This is how we set the Standard. My boss also told me that he has noticed a huge difference in the morale of the yard since I have been here. I am confident that without the instruction and the quotes that I get from you that I would have never been able to achieve the level of greatness that we have here in Hobbs. 2logical will continue to be very instrumental to my success as a manager in the future.

I am writing you this letter to let you know how much your training has done for me both personally and professionally. Your training has taught me the skills necessary to advance myself to levels I thought were not possible before.
My main achievements have come professionally and they involve becoming the #1 Service Advisor for Buick Motors division in the nation. I have no doubt that the main reason I was able to achieve this was due to your training, which lead to my realization that I have unlimited potential. With the help and resources you have given me, I know that this is only the beginning of things to come. Thanks again for everything. I know I will see you in the future, hopefully at the top.

Kelly Z., Account Administrator | BlueCross BlueShield
When we began training I was feeling unchallenged and actually bored with my current position. One of your suggestions was to ask John if I could assist him in meeting our corporate goals. I asked John if I could help call on his prospects. John was pleased with the idea and it has been going well. I am a very driven person and I feel my future is in sales. I know that eventually there will be a sales position that opens up, and I’ll be ready. Not a day goes by that I don’t use something I have learned from you.
On Premise Manager | Constellation Brands
I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you once again for the terrific leadership training we just went through in Chicago. Without a doubt it was the best leadership or Management class I’ve ever been a part of. Very informative and eye opening to learn about being a leader versus being a manager.
Bev K., Service Rep | Medical Mutual of Ohio
I just want to thank you for everything you have done for me over the past few years. During our meeting on Tuesday, I had come to the realization of a lot of things.
So many times at your meetings, you go over the same material and then add new things. In the beginning, I didn’t realize why you were doing it this way. Now it makes sense to me. I am now doing things automatically from things you have ingrained in me time after time. Now when I meet with a broker or group I automatically do the rapport building and the qualifying without any effort. It’s reassuring to know it’s paying off. Since we have been working on affirmations, I’m amazed of its power. I have never been organized. But since I am telling myself, “I am organized,” I am finding that I am more organized. I still have a ways to go, but I’m on my way. It’s amazing how the power of suggestion works. Also, with my cross-selling I am doing much better. I believe it’s a combination of self-confidence and affirmations.
I am really glad Bill and Ken have given us this opportunity to help ourselves grow with your guidance. I have grown so much since I have been a Service Representative because of all your help and encouragement. I look forward to your meetings as I know I will get my ‘fix’. Thanks for all you have done for me.

I've been getting a lot out of this, just as I did with the Self-Leadership class 2 years ago. It literally made me a better leader the second I left that day. I had so many ideas that I wanted to share with my team and we ended up implementing.
It's funny, when you said you should reach out to that person who you credit for helping you in your career (which I did)...I'm starting to GET that same call from others I've had the pleasure of working with and leading. What an amazing feeling that is knowing you helped someone show themselves the potential they have. In the business world, there's no better feeling than that, for me at least.
I wanted to reach out and see if you could send those interview questions along? I'm building out my new team and I would like some curveball questions to ask. I'm finding that many of the candidates are straight out of college and are coached really well on giving a canned answer to the normal interview questions. The two people who hired me at CGI used the "Tell me about your 3 best friends." question and it threw me for a loop! I appreciate all your guidance! Thank you, John!
